HMRC's NEW DIGITAL VAT RULES
September 4th, 2019.


This handy checklist will give you the lowdown on how to comply with HMRC’s rollout of Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT.

Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT is new HMRC legislation that forms part of a wider plan to eventually digitise all tax for UK businesses. All VAT-registered businesses with VAT-able sales above the annual VAT threshold (currently £85,000) are now required by law to keep digital records and file digital VAT returns through MTD-compatible software.

The majority of businesses need to do this for VAT periods that started on or after 1st April 2019 and around a million UK businesses are required to submit their VAT returns under the new system.

When you run your own business, changes to tax legislation can often seem intimidating but complying with Making Tax Digital needn’t feel that way. This checklist walks you through how to get up to speed with the new rules and how you and your business can benefit from the new system.
